iMac Pro 5K- Vega 64 - Wanting to game better on Bootcamp - HELP! TIA
Hey EGPU.io community,
I am so thankful to find this forum! I have not seen any post regarding running bootcamp with my iMac Pro 5k (vega 64) for better gaming. If I missed a important post with someone in the same scenario I apologize in advance.
What enclosure and card do you recommend for gaming with the equipment I have? I am not concerned with price, my focus is performance. I will primarily be playing Apex and other FPS.
I understand from reading this forum that an iMac Pro 5k can tend to be tricky with error 12. Ease of use will be important to me as I am somewhat technically inclined.
I look forward with connecting with the community!
I wouldn’t bother, a Vega 64 is a decent card!
Thank you for the response! Playing Apex Legends on bootcamp and playing it at 4k is not the level of smooth I would expect it to be. Any recommendations?
What is causing the loop back acceleration ? Software or hardware issue? Is there a way to overcome it?
@nick_easton there is no way to overcome loopback loss (as far as I know), it's physical limitations of having to pass data back through cables and out to a screen via some gubbins rather than straight out from the GPU.
Due to this bottlenecking/performance loss a 2080ti may not perform much better than the Vega 64, maybe...
Playing at 4K is super demanding, if I were in your shoes I would crank res down to 1440 (1/2 your native 5K) and you'll be getting great FPS...
